The retirement of the present owners now presents an ideal opportunity to live in the heart of rural France while benefiting from the income from 2 charming holiday gîtes.
Situated in the peaceful village of La Chapelle Moulière, you will find yourself surrounded by countryside, farmland, nearby forests and within walking distance of the river Vienne. Yet, being only a 25 minute drive from the ancient city of Poitiers or 20 minutes from Futuroscope, the property is perfectly located - truly offering the best of both worlds.
Having been run as a successful chambre d'hotes business for 25 years, 'La Pomme d'Or' boasts a well developed reputation, spacious flowery gardens featuring swimming pool, terraced areas and even a summer kitchen. Not to be missed!
The main house has been skillfully renovated, leaving many of the oak beams visible - giving a traditional rustic French feel. The ground floor comprises of an entrance area, leading to a modern kitchen of 13m², a charming oak beamed lounge and dining area of 26m² (with wood burner) and a shower room with toilet. The house is heated with attractive traditional style cast iron radiators, fed from a modern cost efficient air-source heat pump.
The first-floor comprises of a double bedroom of 22m² and two further bedrooms of 9m² and 8m². The second floor features a spacious bedroom of 27m² (a loft conversion with oak beams and frames still visible) and an en-suit shower room with toilet.
The second house (furnished and used as a holiday gîte) consists of a dining kitchen and separate lounge on the ground floor of some 26m² and 31m² respectively. The first-floor features three bedrooms of 20m², 11m² and 11m² with two shower rooms with toilets and a walk-in storage cupboard.
The partially converted barn offers a further furnished studio flat of 31m² with a separate shower room and toilet of 9.5m², currently used as a holiday gîte. The remaining 103m² of the barn building provides you with great potential for future expansion if desired. An additional above ground floor could be added for even more space!
The entire site spans some 2,615m² with a swimming pool and terrace, summer kitchen, a courtyard with shower facilities and even a covered area for the barbeque. A further courtyard is found in front of the main house adjacent to a garage of 22m². There is with easy access to the main road through a set of double iron gates.
The whole complex has been well maintained and managed over the years, meaning any potential purchaser does not need to worry about additional expense before moving in. The two holiday gîtes come fully ready for letting out. The spacious second floor bedroom in the main house (with en-suit shower room) can accommodate 6 guests and has served as a successful Chambres d'hôtes for many years. ‘La Pomme d’Or’ has a very good existing reputation on the major websites such as Booking.com.
Making the decision to live in France is truly exciting. By buying a property already in good condition with a successful gîte business, you will enjoy a peaceful life in the sun.

The Vienne was formed in 1790 from parts of the historical regions of Poitou, Berry and Touraine. The department tends to slope downwards from the north to the south with the highest point reaching 764 ft and the lowest point being 115ft at the confluence of the River Creuse and the River Charente. The department gets its name from the River Vienne, which flows straight down the centre.
Poitiers is the departmental and regional capital and boasts France's oldest Christian building, the Saint Jean baptistery, constructed back in the fourth century. The town has some fine examples of Romanesque architecture, is a pleasant small city, and visitors will find a relaxed atmosphere, especially compared to Paris. IT is home to around 90,000 people including many students thanks to the popular university. Poitiers is also a good base to visit nearby towns and cities. A lot of retirees move to the city and its' environs, attracted by its warm climate (snow is rare).
North of Poitiers is Futuroscope, France's scientific theme park, created by the Vienne departmental council. Further north still is Chatellerault, a charming town with tree-lined avenues and the imposing Henry IV bridge, built some four centuries ago which crosses the River Vienne.
Montmorillon is a small town with only 7,500 inhabitants, and book publishing is the town's speciality and a book fair is held here every June. The nearby Vienne River offers kayaking and fishing amongst many other activities. Away from the river, the gentle countryside provides an ideal location for horse riding and walking.
Ryanair flies direct to both Limoges and Poitiers. If you'd rather go by land then take France's super fast TGV train service, which stops off in Poitiers. To get there by car, take the A10 from Paris.
